The 26th annual Northeast Regional Carwash Convention was held October 5-7 at its traditional New Jersey shore locale, albeit with a new address. For the first time in many years the NRCC ventured out of the friendly confines of the Trump Taj Mahal and moved into its new home in the Atlantic City Convention Center.

The ever-expanding event simply outgrew its old venue, and with more elbowroom exhibitor and attendee numbers were on the rise. The event set a new record with 301 exhibits and drew in over 1,600 attendees. The larger show floor was open for two days during the event for a total of nine hours.

He was also awarded this year’s Most Distinguished Person award by show chairman, David DuGoff, on behalf of the Mid-Atlantic Carwash Association, this year’s host.
